CLOISTERS

 

ST GENIS DES FONTAINES CLOISTER AND ABBEY

Saint-Genis-des-Fontaines’ abbey was founded in 780 by Sentimir and dedicated to Saint Génis. The cloister was rebuilt at the very end of the Romanesque period (end of the 13th century). Its specificity comes from its polychrome marbles. Facing the church, the white marble lintel is a colossal piece of work.
